Downtown Mall Day

by Meg on January 15, 2010

Today I spent most of the morning at the Downtown Mall, where there are quirky little shops, and the best day spa in the country- Oasis! I was given an hour and a half massage from my cousin. It was a perfect end to this week. The masseuse, Emily, was really nice and worked out those knows- which before a weekend with three kids was much needed. :)

Afterwards, I headed down to Revolutionary Soup, which I was excited to see right around the corner from Oasis. They pride themselves in having local veggies, and high quality ingredients. I picked out two soups that were gluten free. The Spicy Senegalese Peanut Tofu soup which said it was a “spicy blend of jalapenos combined with mild peanut soup garnished with scallions & cilantro.” I also got the Butternut Squash Bisque. I brought them home so I could have them for this weekend. But alas, the peanut soup(about half of it) ended up being my lunch. :) I plopped some roasted chicken straight into it for little more protein.

The girls REALLY wanted to make creme brulee, so as of right now we are in the second step of making 6 ramekins worth. I wonder if I could make it with whole milk, or even low fat milk and it would still taste as good or set?
